    Here's my second stab at Ratchet.I couldn't stand his stupid bloody "salad tongs" accessory he came with so I've pepped him up with his buzzsaw and gun arm so you you can relive his memorable lines like "Get to the building" or "Get to the building" or..oh well you get the point.

    Sweet. Looks like you made the robot mode dinged up and dirty while keeping the vehicle mode (relatively) pristine. Extra credit for that.

    Great job. If the movie figure were painted like that they would sell better.Watch them be rereleased for movie 2 with super accurate paint jobs

    That's a cool gun! I'm pretty sure "get to the building" was Ironhide's line :)  Ratchet's got the pheromone line, which was pretty memorable.

    The gun arm attachment is kit-bashed from Robogear kits (a sorta sub warhammer 40k range of styrene kits available in the UK) and has sculpted "plugs" that slot into the cavities on the inside of the flip out battleaxe.So you flip th axe out and sandwich it inside,.The buzzsaw is custom made from styene sheet and sprayed Chrome.It rare earths to either of two positions on the wrist.Looks better than Dremel buzzsaws( if you know what I mean)

    Holy shit man! You made it real! I've done the thing with the dremel etc. But indeed yours looks way better.

    I'm working on a gun attachment but can't figure out how to yet.

    maybe you could work up a bit of a tutorial?

    oh and WHERE can I get rare-earths?!

    Dude, nicely done. Both the gun and the saw look great. Sure wish the figure had come with those originally.
